Untitled photo


I was born and raised in Japan and am currently a Ph.D. student in architectural history in the United States. I started photography in 2016 by taking photographs of concrete walls, which culminated in the photobook Scalable. I mainly take photographs of buildings, architectural sites, cities, and landscapes. Please look at the photographs of each site in sequence and enjoy the story of each journey.

I am managing three other websites: www.shiges.tokyo (my main website as a scholar); Shige’s Kitchen | Japanese Home Cooking and Other Stuff (a cooking blog in which I write about various topics related to Japan or cooking); and Shige’s America | しげのアメリカ生活 (a Japanese blog in which I write about a lot of challenges, and some joys, that my family and I have while living in the United States).
